hearing is on friday. you're just back from israel. what is the view there now? >> well, the israelis are very cautious about not saying anything. you know, there was this whole business about interfering about the netanyahu government. they're being hyper cautious about not saying anything. that said there's a lot of worry that he is you're going to distance or work to distance the united states from israel, and that's kind of right beneath the surface. i don't think it's true, but i think this is what the worry is. >> today the president called benjamin netanyahu to congratulate him on his majority. >> i'm looking forward to their joint interview on "60 minutes." that's going to be very cuddly, i'm sure. >> at the same time do you think that a john kerry state department is going to be more engaged in trying to push the israeli-palestinian track, or does everything now depend on what happens in egypt? >> this is very interesting. there's going to be a lot of pressure on president obama from everyone from the king of jordan to the british prime minister. >> there already is. >> to re

? >> that is my understanding. we have given a good deal of military and economic aid to israel. since they signed a peace deal with anwr sadat, we give $1.3 annually. the reason we have given it to them, a wikileaks cable came out in 2009 saying this is a down payment on peace with israel, and the egyptian regime, whether it was sadat, mubarak and now morsi, i think sees this as money that's necessary in order for them to keep the peace. does it make it right? and i don't agree with giving them this military hardware. but i think that's the reason why this money keeps flowing to the egyptian regime, which is now underred hands of the muslim -- under the hands of the muslim brotherhood. >>gretchen: arguably it is a different regime. you could argue mubarak a dictator but he did keep the peace with israel. do you argue this hardware should be going there now? >> no, i do not. this is a new regime. we should revisit the rules. all our aid has been contingent on progress from freedom of expression, freedom of religion. due process under the law. secretary clinton waived that so this could go to this
